A promising first 6 months of the year for French films in Mexico
Since 1995, French films released in Mexico have attracted, on average, over 950,000 spectators annually. But with 532,000 admissions already registered to mid-June, the first half of 2001 shows encouraging results for French fare.
This year, French cinema has already secured 2.5% of the theatrical market in Mexico City (normally fluctuating between 1.5% and 3% annually). Moreover, while the majority of admissions to French films are usually credited to foreign-language productions (over 60% on average), it is worth highlighting that results for the first six months of 2001 reverse this trend. 80% of movie admissions for the period concern French-language films, particularly focused on "The Crimson Rivers", which has pulled in 275,000 spectators after just one month on the screens.
